Help stimulate tissues with Ultrasound
Ultrasound therapy has the ability to stimulate tissues underneath the skin surface using sound waves by using different frequencies and intensities for specific problem areas. Ultrasound therapy is beneficial for muscle, tendon, ligament and joint problems by heating up the focus area which allows numerous benefits to occur.
In relation to musculoskeletal injuries, ultrasound works in numerous ways; it increases blood flow to the affected area which speeds up the healing process; it eases pain and swelling; it softens up any existing scar tissue surrounding the area; and heats and relaxes the muscles which helps relieve pain. During ultrasound therapy treatment you most likely will not feel anything, potentially a warming or tingling sensation around the injured areas.
